Burroughs's Apps

Early in the game, Burroughs will make available to you a wealth of Apps, applications that are able to ease or enhance your game experience.

That can include allowing you have more demons, being able to mug demons for Macca, having more skills, getting stuff when recruiting demons, and more! There’s an app for pretty much anything demon-related you could want, so get to looking.

Note that some skills won’t pop up until others are bought, like those ending with a number ("Expand Stock 2", etc.), usually in the form a chain - you buy X1 to make X2 available, and so on and so forth. This stuff is usually pretty obvious. And, yeah, AP means App Points.
